I don't see an 'upset' in the first round (per seeding)

Second round I see Nebraska losing to Ohio State

Third round (semis) could be a crap shoot - to be honest any team that wins wouldnt be a surprise
I will go with Wisconsin and Michigan meeting in the final

I think Wisconsin beats Michigan - the just seem to match up well with them
pretty iffy with Jackson playing point and Hayes not making free throws
I just think Wisconsin has the better team

No team really has an easy run to win it
Will have to beat a couple good teams to win it all

Indiana' cream colored jersey's are really distracting. I don't like it.
If you were right, I'd agree with you

Whatever Crean was just drinking was definitely NOT water.

With Villanova throwing their 1 seed away this afternoon, the door opens for Michigan and Wisconsin to grab that 1 seed now. If Wisconsin or Michigan win the B1G tournament I have to believe they will be the final one seed with Florida, Wichita State, and Arizona.
If you want to drink all day, you have to start in the morning.

I don't know, I tend to think the Big Ten Tourney gets disregarded (absent a Friday loss obviously), as the final game ends so close to when they release the bracket.

Iowa still some people's Final Four pick? [rotfl]
"Let's Play Two!!!"

Baseball is not a game that builds character, it is a game that reveals it.

In all seriousness, did Iowa just play itself out of an NCAA tournament bid?

Losers of 6 of their last 7 games, it appears the Hawkeyes (20-12) have completely collapsed defensively over that period, allowing 80 ppg. To create some perspective, Iowa was defeated tonight by a team which they had trampled twice during the regular season by 26 pts each time. I believe they are on the bubble and I will not be surprised if the Hawkeyes are left at the train station in Iowa City for the Big Dance!

Northwestern 67
Iowa 62

In all seriousness, did Iowa just play itself out of an NCAA tournament bid? Over the last 6 games, they have completely collapsed. They are on the bubble, at best. I will not be surprised, and none of you fine folks should be either, if the Hawkeyes are left at home for the Big Dance!


Iowa had more wins last year and were left out.

Iowa may be a microcosm of how bad the B1G is. Im hoping its good top to bottom, but the ultimate decider will be the Big Dance. We shall see.

Final Score

Yes, the Haweyes have 9 conference wins. However, other than a conference win over Ohio St & Michigan, one would be hard-pressed to point out another quality win for Iowa, either in the conference or outside of it. And, their RPI is a less-than-impressive 48.
